Cromtober Part 2: Bonfire Ghost Stories

Then my heart it grew ashen and sober 
      As the leaves that were crispèd and sere— 
      As the leaves that were withering and sere, 
And I cried—"It was surely October 
      On this very night of last year 
      That I journeyed—I journeyed down here— 
      That I brought a dread burden down here— 
      On this night of all nights in the year, 
      Oh, what demon has tempted me here? 
Well I know, now, this dim lake of Auber— 
      This misty mid region of Weir— 
Well I know, now, this dank tarn of Auber— 
      In the ghoul-haunted woodland of Weir." 
-Edgar Allen Poe, ""Ulalume - A Ballad"

Welcome, Cromrades, to an evening of ghost stories from our homelands. We spent the evening recounting legends of hauntings from our homelands, sipping bourbon, and enjoying Halloween candy earlier this Cromtober! We hope you enjoy the tales. Send in your ghost stories, via email or voice mail! We'd love to hear them!

Happy Halloween!
